SHAPIRO: Their music videos involved streaking, and their stage banter included a lot of toilet humor. But the third single off the album was different. It was a song that dealt with depression, loneliness and, at its very core, suicide. It's called "Adam's Song," and it became a banner for the band's young fans to process feelings that they maybe didn't understand until they got older. NPR's Andrew Limbong has this for our series American Anthem.
